Fool me one time, shame on you... And two times? Shame on me.
In Afghanistan this week, they fooled NATO times three.
So much for us helping out. We're target dummies now?
Someone has to stop this awful killing spree - somehow.
Forces we are training to step up as we draw down;
Teaching to defend the laws and streets of their own town,
Have a dreadful tendency to harbor in their midsts
Taliban extremists we do not have on our lists.
Men who open fire, killing everyone they can...
Seems to me the screening process hasn't gone to plan.
Maybe we should change the ammunition? Give them blanks.
When we have the chance to stand in front - decline, with thanks.
'though I know we plan to go and bring our people home,
Let's remember lessons learned as long ago as Rome;
When you deal with tribal customs things are slow to change.
Everyone's related and all families are strange.
